Question about 1993 Jeep Grand Cherokee

2 Answers

Jeep wont start sometimes and other times it just dies while driv

1993 grand cherokee, V-8, 5.2 engine. dual port injection, 204000 miles. I would be driving either on city streets or the expressway and all of a sudden the engine would just stop. At first it would restart with no problem but now it ranges from 10 minutes to get it started to not starting at all for a couple of days. Installed a new battery several months ago and last month while doing a rear brake job i decided to replace the fuel filter. I have had a couple suggestions ranging from the fuel pump to the crankshaft sensor, or the throttle position sensor, or the manifold absolute pressure sensor. I dont have the money to replace eveything or to take it to a garage so any help would be greatly appreciated.

You might be able to test your fuel pressure the next time it dies to see if its the fuel pump, there should be a port on the fuel rail on the engine.

    Sorry 'bout previous post--CAT on ky-br! I hav the same vehicle& had a similar issue. I did the R-&-R's which were suggested for u to do. My prob turned out to be--the pig-tail on the bottom of the Ign.-coil. Repalced the coil (once) & the pig-tail (twice) 3 yrs ago. No probs since! Good luck!

Why wont my sons jeep run now


Try putting a timing light on it once you get it to crank and idle. Sounds like the timing is retarded too much. Advancing it should make it run better. Also check that you are getting proper fuel pressure to the engine.

1993 jeep Grand Cherokee 4.0


I have had this happen with the Jeep 4.0 motors because the rubber hoses going to the metal intake from the valve covers had cracks or were broken. Its been a while sine I've been under the hood of a 4.0 but that is a good place to start.

Do you have a security system? Some jeeps have a factory system and you unlock the pasenger door with the keys to turn it off. Could also be the crank sensor.

95 jeep grand cherokee died wont start,it cranks, checked fuel pump replaced filter cleaned injecters still nothing


Check to see if getting fire from coil or plugs. If not, your problem is most likely the Crankshaft Position Sensor.

$18 - $21 dollars. CPS is on left side of where transmission buckles to fly wheel, near top edge. One bolt and plugs in. (2 wires in plug)

Drive shaft to 4-wheel gear box might be in your way. No prob. 4 small bols and lower front end of drive shaft.

About a 45 - 60 minute job for shadetree mechanics, like myself, and 2 coffee breaks.

Prior syptoms of sensor going bad is engine rumbling real bad when coming to a stop, and sometimes dies but will start.

Hope this it.

1997 Jeep Grand Cherokee. Stalls out,engine quits running


since its a 1997 your jeep has EFI, electronic fuel injection. The most probable reason for your troubles would be the injectors or a problem with the computer controling them, not allowing enough gas to be pushed into the cylinder causing stalling or lack of power, also too much gas iin the cylinder can lead to back firing and stalling. This would also explain the reason it takes so long to start back up some times, all the excess gas in the cylinder is flooding the motor and u have to wait till the gas disipates till the engine will turn over.

The crank and cam sensor's are very common problems on these jeeps. Check them or have someone check them with a scanner. one or both are most likley the problem.
